  • MUST rent this apartment if you are in Paris

    "I don't know where to begin with our week long rental of Alyssum as every single aspect of the apartment and the service we received was perfect! The pictures are 100% accurate. Alyssum: This unit in the 5th Ar. is perfectly located: two blocks from the Seine, on the Left Bank across from Isle de la Cite and Notre Dame. There is a Metro stop directly across the street. This is a second floor unit and there is a small, new working elevator plus a staircase. The building is secure and we had a code for the keypad at entry. Directly downstairs is a fully stocked super market where we bought food daily even if just water and a baguette. The unit fronts Rue Monge and has a balcony with a table and 2 chairs which we had coffee on each morning. The kitchen is brand new and compares to a mini version of a "chef's kitchen" in America. While we did not actually cook, it was so nice to have wine and cheese in the fridge and coffee at our fingertips. The washer/dryer allowed us to pack light and we did wash 2x in the week. When you walk in, there is a hallway with high ceilings (the entire apt. has high ceilings) and gorgeous original wood floors. The bathroom is to your left and it qualifies as a good size master bath in any American home with double sinks and a huge shower with great water pressure. To your right off the hallway is the living room. The couch and chairs were great for relaxing after a long day, the TV gets a number of US channels including CNN and ESPN. The air conditioning is perfect. Behind the couch, there is a table which divides the LR from the kitchen/dining area. The dishwasher was also a great bonus. At the end of the hall that you walk into is the bedroom. It faces a courtyard and has good light during the day but does have black out shades. The bed is comfortable - better than hotels. The apartment is just overall perfect and we hope to return. The management service was also A+. Philippe, Christophe and Marie made our stay easy and they were available for any need (we needed nothing however). For those outside of France, their email communications were fast, easy and always within 24 hours. Little tips: Rue Mouffard is up the street and is a local shopping area for great cheese, bread, meats, veggies and wine. Some great restaurants at the square at the beginning of this street as well. Always full with Parisians which says a lot. If you can, rent this apartment! We now would stay nowhere else in Paris!"

  • Excellent Location

    "My husband, daughter and I spent a week in this great flat. We all thought the location was perfect. It was located in the Marais so walking distance to major sites, however, on a quiet side street. The flat was exactly how described, clean and very spacious compared to other Parisien hotel rooms rented during our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a cup of coffee and grab a pastry at the corner boulangerie. We met our daughter in Paris and had a miscommunication with her on the time of check in and she showed up early (our mistake). It was a bit of a mess but they were very accommodating in getting this fixed for us. Communication was very good. Oh also, the flat was very quiet, which was good. We were exhausted when we hit the bed (which was comfortable too!). I would highly recommend this flat for your stay in Paris!"

  • Great apartment to stay.

    "We had few amazing days with my husband and daughter in this apartment. The owner: Astrid is very kind and helpful. Prompt respond to Emails. Gave us detail map how to get to the apartment from the airport by public transport. The apartment: Small, but cozy and comfortable for few days stay. Very clean and updated. You will have everything you need for a pleasant stay. Very quiet building and street. Did not have any problems with noises in the building or from the streets around. The bed is comfortable, even the sofa bed was great. The location: Excellent location. Close to few metro stations. Walking distance to stores , coffee shops and restaurants. About 20 minutes walk to many places that tourists would like to visit. We really enjoyed the neighborhood. I would recommend this apartment to my friends and to everyone who need place to stay in Paris. Thank you Astrid for your hospitality!"

  • Fit for a king

    "The apartment on Rue Gabriel was extremely well suited to our needs. It is two minutes from the metro and three minutes from the Champs elysee, 8 minutes from le Louvre gardens......... I could go on! as for the apartment itself; it kind of made me feel bad that we were out so often because it was so nice! Well, next time we will come in winter. Thanks for everything welcome to France, our stay was magnificent."

Paris Travel Tips

Paris, the City of Lights and love, is a top vacation spot - and for good reason. The city is filled with amazing culture, from art galleries, museums, to gardens, parks, cuisine and everything in between.

No matter which season you choose to visit Paris, it will offer exquisite images of architecture, fashion, food, people and landscapes. Situated along the River Seine, this city provides the perfect getaway location for a romantic trip for two, a fun family adventure or a solo journey to relax and unwind.

Historic Paris landmarks

Eiffel Tower: A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete with a visit to Le Tour Eiffel. It was originally built in 1889 for the World Exhibition to commemorate the French Revolution in 1789. It was only supposed to stand during the exhibition, but it was left for travelers to enjoy through the years and has becomes synonymous with the city itself. The Eiffel Tower features three levels for visitors. The first two have restaurants for visitors. From each level, you can take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the city and the River Seine.

Louvre: This art museum is one of the largest and most prominent in all the world. The Louvre, located in the 1st arrondissement, houses some of the most important works of art to ever be created including Leonardo Da Vinci’s "Mona Lisa," the "Venus di Milo," the "Bike of Samothrake" and Michelangelo’s "Dying Slave.” The museum’s first collection were the private acquisitions of King Francis I in the 16th century. Since then, the Louvre has expanded and now features over one million works of art, 35,000 of which are displayed for the public throughout three wings (Denon, Sully and Richelieu) ranging in time periods from Antiquity to the 19th century. Enter through the Louvre Pyramid or the Carrousel du Louvre and experience one of the most cultural hubs in the world.

Notre Dame Cathedral: Whether or not you’re a religious person, Notre Dame Cathedral is a beautiful Parisian landmark worthy of a visit. Located on the Île de la Cité in the 4th arrondissement, the Notre Dame de Paris, which translates into “our lady of Paris” in French, is a Gothic cathedral that serves as the the city's Catholic archdiocese. Notre Dame is considered one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture and features flying buttresses, stained glass windows and menacing gargoyles. Notre Dame still holds masses, but also serves as a favorite tourist destination for all who come to Paris.

Jardin du Luxembourg: Originally owned by the Duke of Luxemburg who gave the garden its name, this piece of land stretches about 55 acres and is laid out in an Italian style per Marie De Medici, who purchased the land in 1612. In the 19th century, the garden was opened to the public and redesigned in a French style while still preserving the original layout. At the garden’s center rests the Grand Bassin, an octagonal pond where children can rent small boats to float around. The Jardin du Luxembourg also features pony rides, a puppet theater and a merry-go-round to keep the kids entertained. For the adults, the garden provides exceptional scenic views and the perfect backdrop for an afternoon picnic. The garden is also home to two famous fountains: Fountaine Medicis and Jardins de l’Observatoire.

Other Paris Must-sees

Champs-Élysées: The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a Parisian street full of luxury, haute couture shops, cinemas, cafes and is considered of the the most famous roads in the world. The Champs-Élysées stretches from the Place de Charles de Gaulle, the location of the Arc de Triomphe, to the Place de la Concorde. For the height of Parisian culture, wander up and down the sidewalks of this famous promenade to experience all of the sights and sounds that make Paris one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Moulin Rouge: Located in the hilly neighborhood of Montmarte, the Moulin Rouge, “red mill,” opened in 1889 as a new music hall. It quickly became an infamous dance hall that made the Can-Can famous and was one of the first venues in the city to use electricity. The Moulin Rouge explored the scandalous side of life and shocked many at the time. Today, the Moulin Rouge is still a popular place to visit while exploring Montmarte. The Can-Can has been toned down but is still the signature dance of the place. Visitors are sure to be entertained by high kicks and amazing acrobatics. Shows feature more than 100 performers dressed in extravagant costumes, but are still not suitable for young eyes.

Opéra de Paris Garnier: Famously known as the setting for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical "The Phantom of the Opera," the Paris Opera House, or the Opéra de Paris Garnier, can be found in the 2nd arrondissement. Construction began in 1862, but wasn’t finished until 1875 because a small lake was discovered and still exists under the opera house. Currently, the building is used mainly for ballet performances and was renamed the Palais Opera. The Opéra de Paris Garnier boasts stunning architecture, with a grand marble staircase and foyer featuring a mosaic ceiling and numerous chandeliers.
